Sand ingress and production in large amounts pose severe and unique challenges to operators during all phases of completion and production operations.
Lessons learned from years of producing sand in conventional sandstone reservoirs can be applied to shale wells, and innovations in shale may offer new ideas for dealing with sand in mature conventional fields.
